If you haven’t already heard about it or started watching it, Netflix released Mindhunter on October 13th and I’ve already binged the entire season.
This new 10-episode crime drama puts an original spin on contemporary police procedurals. It stars Jonathan Groff and Holt McCallany and is based on the 1996 book Mind Hunter: Inside The FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit written by ex-FBI agents Mark Olshaker and John E. Douglas (I’ve already ordered the book!).
It examines the beginnings of the FBI’s Behavioral Sciences Unit in the 1970s, it invites viewers in to discover how the term ‘serial killer’ was developed and how the FBI fine-tuned its methods over the years. This show is the perfect combination of crime and intense psychological drama (my two favorite subjects).
